Livestock Considerations

Livestock Considerations

  • Map primary and alternate evacuation routes and temporary boarding sites or livestock holding facilities.
  • Horse owners should have a halter and lead line for each horse. Keep them on or near its enclosure gate.
  • Owners of any livestock should post emergency contact information in a conspicuous place.
  • Make arrangements to ensure that suitable vehicles, trailers, handlers and drivers are available to transport livestock. Be sure your animals are familiar with transporting vehicles before an emergency.
  • Make sure horses and other companion animals have microchip identification and that all animals have some identification.Livestock Considerations

If large animals cannot be evacuated, determine whether they can be moved to a shelter or be allowed to remain in an outside enclosure, based on the type of disaster, and the reliability of the location.
